New milonga starts at the famous salsa dance night club in Mountain View, CA. Hosts are Dorcas Hendershott and Igor Polk. A tango teacher from Buenos Aires'es even more famous "La Confiteria Ideal" Diego Alvaro was teaching a class. Right at first time Alberto's became a world-class meeting place: two milongueros Diego Alvaro and Ruben met at the dance floor. Great music by Berhard Kohlhaas, more than 100 dancers !

Over 100 dancers appeared. This photo was taken at the end of milonga when crowd became small.

Albertos is a cozy place: plenty of opportunities to relax after a hot dance.
